I am not so sure I would have looked so happy with sharks swimming around me, but the pics are beautiful.

See you soon.

Sharks have to eat too!

I've swam with black fin reef sharks - as soon I entered the water they swam away - must be afraid of me - yes - I had showered!

Haha, Ted. I don't mind them eating as long as it doesn't involve taking a bite out of me.

At LAX waiting for our flight to auckland. We will spend a couple of days there before boarding on Thursday. We had a wonderful day today with Helen and Jerry and their family at Disneyland. They sure know how to show out of towners a good time!

The sharks don't care one bit about us. Can't wait to see you and George in Auckland.

Ha ha, Ted. They ran away from Alan and me too even though we had showered smiles.

Day before yesterday, we missed Rarotonga because the swells were too big to tender to shore. While it was sad to miss a port, I have scary memories from LAMB when our tender had a hard time returning to the ship because of those swells.

Today, the seas have been really bouncy, not good for me. I'll post photos from Bora Bora tomorrow, hopefully.

Hmm, we're right behind you and having gorgeous weather. No problems at all in Rarotonga and beautiful weather here in Bora Bora today. It's the luck of the draw I guess. We'll be anchored in Bora Bora for three days to allow plenty of time to drink in this beautiful scenery. We're counting down the days -- five more-- until Ngaire and the group get on. The food has been outstanding and so has everything else--it's been a wonderful cruise that's only going to get better when more friends get on.

So glad your cruise is going well, Peggy. 3 days anchored in Bora Bora sounds wonderful. We're experiencing excellent food and fantastic service, as well. Glad to know that the luxury cruise industry is meeting our expectations smiles. Say hi to the stingrays for us.

Looking forward to boarding later today.

Why am I up so early? George somehow managed to set the hotel alarm clock for 4 am.

I am also posting over on CC as I have a lot of friends who don't follow LCT.

See you today, Rachel! Lucky me, I'm married to a man with an internal alarm clock. It's a 5 a.m. wakeup call no matter where we are in the world. I survive on afternoon naps smiles.

Missed the port of Napier today due to high winds. Very bummed as it was one of the ones I looked forward to most.

The entertainment on the Grand Voyage has been ho-hum until last night. Pianist Van-Ahn Nguyen rocked her concert. Formal night and Valentine's Day made the perfect combination. The LCT contingent looked dashing, if I do say so myself.

Today, we're in Picton. Alan and I skipped tours in favor of a stroll through town and to recuperate from going to bed at 2 a.m. last night.

At the Melbourne airport awaiting our long flight home. We had a wonderful trip, all the better with the company of Donna, Alan, and David.
